There are some real cowboys in Cuba. I got to hang out with these guys for a while. They were taking a break from working in the fields. I took a few pictures with my mamiya 7 then I left. Before I left I gave all the guys lighters. They were so excited! I couldn't believe it, their smiles were rim to rim! So, I'm about to leave and the lady calls over to our guide and they have a talk....and he comes back to me and says the lady is mad that you didn't offer her a lighter because she smokes to. I told my translator to apologize for me and to tell her i thought she didn't smoke. I gave her my last lighter and she gave me the biggest hug....mind you she hardly had any teeth left...i'm just glad she went for the hug not a kiss!

Hilarious! Good story...wish I would've been there to watch it go down.

We all need to go to Cuba. Richie can show us the ropes down there.
